PROVINCIAL GRAND LODGE OF WEST WALES
PRIF GYFRINFA TALAITH GORLLEWIN CYMRU
When contacting brethren during the Lockdown could you keep in mind the following and advise as you think appropriate without overly alarming people. It is a sad fact that at times like this a small minority of society will take advantage of the vulnerable, let us all do what we can to protect them.
Coronavirus is now amongst us and we are witnessing stores and other similar outlets being closed to fight the virus. These closures present problems in areas of crime. We all know there are more people reliant on alcohol and drugs. I am not talking here of prescribed drugs which can be supplied by the Chemists, but illegal drugs such as Heroin Cocaine etc sold by “Dealers”. These people need money to buy drugs, the shops are closed so shoplifting is not an option. Many will resort to burglary and theft from households etc in order to get money for their “fix”.
With the above in mind I offer the following advice:
All this information will help the Police recover and return items should you be unlucky enough to suffer a theft or burglary
Brethren I wish you and your family Good health. With a sensible approach we will all make it to the other side without too many problems.
Sincerely and Fraternally
John Watson PGA
